These ‘Library Challenge’ cards were made for my class library, but they could be used in a school library as well. The idea was just to get the children excited about reading and properly engaged with the books, and they’ve really enjoyed working through the activities – an added bonus being that I use this work to decorate the walls of our library. <br />
There’s a selection of 10 Library Challenge Cards, plus a ‘Library Challenge of the Week’ which just allows for changing things up a little without having to print and laminate more cards.
Resources to introduce dystopian/post-apocalyptic literature conventions to AS students, but also suitable for GCSE or KS3 students.

Due to the popularity of this resource I have included a Powerpoint I used for a very successful observation lesson by Ofsted. <br />
Also a bank of poems that I developed using Similes and Metaphors in them to create images and a few more resources too including a soothing soundtrack and background to play on your IW on loop. <br />
MAY UPDATE: I have recently added even more poems and simile / metaphor references for this resource! <br />
